Professional ballerina Eliza Blutt, of the New York City Ballet, shows us a behind-the-scenes look at what it’s like prepping for a special version of The Nutcracker—aka the first show she’s performed in 10 months. ✨ This beautiful version is choreographed by Troy Schumacher and danced by Eliza and other members of the New York City Ballet while they wait to perform on their regular stage. It is SO magical. From dance rehearsals, the process of picking pointe shoes, to actual clips of the performance day at the estate in upstate New York, she shows us EVERYTHING. ❄️ Watch the rest of the video to follow her journey! 💫
